MILAN — It’s not easy working with a renowned perfectionist, but for four years and counting, British cosmetics guru Linda Cantello has been Giorgio Armani’s international makeup artist, establishing a tangible link between the designer’s runway creations and the Armani beauty products L’Oréal Luxe offers each season.
“The difference between Armani and other people I’ve worked with — he doesn’t communicate verbally. You know, he communicates on a much more telepathic level,” said Cantello following the Giorgio Armani runway show. “I think we have the same taste in physical beauty, because I always like the girls who are a little bit off. I don’t like kind of mundane pretty, and he doesn’t either.…He hates heavy-handedness, like drag queen makeup. He wants to be able to see the woman.”
